that tie riding Alex, taking the lead in a speedy 45.27 seconds. But it was the fi nal rider to compete in the second round, Spooner aboard Arthos R, who stole the show, stopping the clock in 44.39 seconds for the win.Spooner explained how he was able to cut almost a full sec- ond off Gates’ time. “I was lucky to be able to practice the inside turn aſt er 6B with Quirado RC [whom he also rode in the sec- ond round]. I executed the inside turn much bet er on Arthos. I also came out of the turn to the next oxer with more pace, which set up a nice turn for me to go out and around to get to the last fence of the jump-off . I knew that if I could get to the leſt side of the oxer I would be able to


make the inside turn and end up with a faster time.”Spooner and Arthos R are a fairly new pairing, but the veteran rider is quite fond of the stallion. “I began riding him in May of this year. He was a lit le out of shape, but now his muscle tone has improved quite a bit. He’s a very careful and scopey horse that is one of the easiest, if not the eas- iest, horse I’ve ever ridden. He’s like riding an equitation horse over the 1.50m jumps. His future is very bright and he continues to improve as his fi tness has increased and our relationship has become closer. He is a phe- nomenal horse.” More online: http://bit.ly/712A_Vegas
